When viewed from the side the 19.5 Wicked (and Fats and Team Comps for that matter) will have a horizontal top tube - pretty much level with front and back tires that are the same size. There will be a small space on the back of the head tube between the top tube weld and the down tube weld - my guess about 3/8" (10mm).

On the 18" Wicked, Team and Fat, the top tube slopes back toward the seat tube. This is more pronounced on the 16.5s. The top tube and down tube welds either touch or have a very small space between them on the head tube - maybe 1/16" or less (1 mm or so).

Team Comps may have a bit bigger space between the top and down tube welds since the Prestige down tube was 1.25" diameter and the Wickeds and Fats used the True Temper 1.375" diameter down tube.

The 18s, 16.5s, 15s (rare) and 14s all used the same head tube. The 19.5s, 21s, and 23s all had their own unique length head tube.

Hope this answers some things
